Happy May Day!
You now have so many options of what to celebrate: May Day with maypoles and secret flowers to kind neighbors, Hawaii’s Lei Day, Law Day, International Workers Day, and even Mother Goose Day. I also celebrate my birthday. Whatever you celebrate, make your best effort to enjoy the month as we immerse ourselves with spring in full bloom.
April 23rd I had the privilege of being interview by Laura Moe on her Young Adult Authors Cafe. She is an exciting teen author (Breakfast with Neruda) as well as a great interviewer. The hour of conversation flew by as we talked about writing, Letters to Follow-A Dancer’s Adventure (book 3 in the ballet trilogy) and Tasman-An Innocent Convict’s Struggle for Freedom. You may listen to the recording and to other authors Laura has interviewed by visiting www.blogtalkradio.com.
May 2nd is a special day for me. I’ve been working with senior citizen writers at a local assisted living residence. Tomorrow they’ll share some of their writings with interested residents. I must say, every time I meet with my band of writers, I am inspired to do a better job with my own writing. It’s true: a long life affords many experiences worth sharing with others.
May 10th is my next scheduled book talk. I hope you and your friends might join me that Thursday at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park from 7-8 PM. We’ll discuss the book and you’ll be invited to play Prisoner’s Fate. It’s a game I invented to share some of the experiences Ean experienced during his journey that took him half way around the world.
May 18th I’ll be at the University Book Store in Mill Creek’s Towne Center. That Friday event is from 6-7 PM, giving us a bit of time to get to know Ean. It’s my last local book event.
May 24th I’ll change hats as I present writing clues and ideas to teen students in the Longview-Kelso area. It’s always exciting to meet with young writers! They energize my writing; I seem to prefer writing for their age group.
Wishing you a lovely May and I hope I’ll see you before the month ends.
